Taverli + Jason | October 16 Wedding

Tailese and I had a splendid time photographing Taverli and Jason's wedding in Emporia, KS.

There is a story behind how Taverli met us but in lieu of time and not to bore you all...I owe a special thanks to Melissa and Scott (we photographed a couple of years ago in Chanute, KS) who referred her Taverli to us. I don't what it is but the ladies from Chanute are the sweetest and kindest people on the face of this earth. Taverli has a contagious personality who can make a complete stranger feel like family. Jason, now he surprised me on the wedding day. He was the shy and quiet as a church mouse but on the wedding day, I saw a different side of him that told me, "this guy really knows how to have a good time." I can honestly say that we have acquired a friendship that will last a lifetime. After I posted some teaser photos a few days after her wedding, she sent me an email that tickled me to death...

Hi Sam!! I can't believe how fast you posted some of the pics--SO EXCITED!! I kept telling myself "Be patient--He photographs a lot of other people besides you.....he will get to them in a couple of weeks"!! So, I can't tell you how pumped I was to already have an email just 3 days after our wedding!! (Which I might add---you were up late according to the time stamp!) Loved the teasers so far---You and Tailese do an amazing job always. I can't wait to see more of the field shot ones.

Thank you again Sam for being a part of our special day. You and your wife are such beautiful people on the inside and out. I will definitely give anyone who is looking for a photographer my highest recommendation! If you ever need help at any of your bridal shows in KC let me know--heck, maybe Melissa and I can both be there sporting our wedding dresses--haha!! I would help you guys out in a heartbeat.

Have a great week!

Looks like someone got into some kid fun.

Coming Soon: Emporia Wedding | Taverli + Jason

I just love Taverli and Jason as a matter of fact, I love the entire wedding party. All I can say is that we had a blast! Teaser photos from their October 16 wedding are posted. Please stay tune for additional images.


Cindy + Stephen | 10.10.10 Wedding

Fall is a beautiful time of year for weddings. I was fortunate to capture Cindy and Stephen’s special day. They are such a beautiful couple that has a great love story to tell. Their love for each other is undeniable. They wed in a very emotional and intimate ceremony amongst family and friends. Both share a story that reaches well across the globe (from U.S. to Korea). During the wedding, both shared tears of happiness and excited that this day finally happened. Each wedding I photograph presents something unique and different. The groom, groomsmen, and even the bride selected Air Jordan’s sneakers with a touch of pink to be their shoe of choice for the ceremony. The splash of pink was chosen to support Breast Cancer Awareness month. I had a great time photographing their wedding and congratulations to Cindy and Stephen on your new beginning.
